FolderMatch is an award-winning Windows utility which compares and synchronizes two folder trees or two files. Winner at the Shareware Industry Awards for three consecutive years, SIA nominee for the "Best Overall Application" & nominee for the European Epsilon Award, it is a "must-have" insurance against loss of valuable data. Never again be stuck with out of date data. Never again lose critical information. FolderMatch ensures that the appropriate versions of all files are retained.

FolderMatch is a fast and easy way to stay in sync. Choose from any of eight different ways to compare your files - from the simple date/time method to the advanced 160-bit Secure Hash Algorithm. Differences are shown side-by-side in a graphical, easy to understand manner. Synchronize the files with a button click. Wizards guide you through the process.

There are many powerful options to choose from. Simple enough for a novice to use, yet feature-rich enough for a power user to exploit. FolderMatch is an ocean where a gnat may drink and an elephant may bathe.

Everyone who must maintain multiple copies of files or folders can benefit from FolderMatch.

Do you work on your files at home and at the office? Are you a frequent business traveler? With users working at home, on the road or in the office, it's hard to keep all of the PCs current with the latest files and data. Documents, databases, spreadsheets, sales and contact information all can get changed several times a day. How is the work coordinated on all of the various PCs, making sure that all systems contain the most recent versions of all of the files? FolderMatch is a tool that solves this problem.
